After FRD's Battlefront 3 was cancelled, rumour had it that Slant Six Games was working on it. And they were right, the guys at www.betagames.org found some files on the Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City which look just a bit like they something from the Star Wars universe:



Don't worry, it was cancelled. Now it's at Spark Unlimited...

Tried to ruin Star Wars. Just imagining a Rogue Squadron game by Slant Six, omg.

Let me guess, it was supposed to be a third person shooter?

I just hope whoever is working on BF3 doesn't fuck it up.

Those are some pretty nice loading screens though.

Battlefront was always a 3rd person shooter? ...or am I missing something.

what was the studio that convinced lucasarts that they could do a quick dirty up_port of their psp battlefront and just ad hd assets and make a ps360 sku cheaper that free radical...which ultimately lead to free radical being dropped from the project? Or did I imagine that happening?

We've got someone here on board who wanted to reveal what really happened. All we know is that Rebellion did Star Wars Battlefront 3 for PS2 and PSP, rumour had it they wanted to get more. In the end, only the PSP version and n-Space's DS version were released and received a new name.

It's bizarre that there isn't a Battlefront III yet. I was under the impression that the first two sold fairly well, and considering the growth of online shooters you'd think someone would jump on it. It's like they hate money!

Zipper's efforts after SOCOM II were so amazing that they are now multimillionaires and have a very successful future.

Unless you worked at LucasArts or Free Radical at the time you have no clue as to what went on between the studios. Deals fall through for multitude of reasons. That whole Rebellion thing was LucasArts trying to salvage something out of it.

Built on the same engine + sloppiness.

Theirs always cool shit left on the disc, getting rid of it without fucking up the game is a lot of work with not much upside.

I'm pretty sure Haze and their own false promises put Free Radical out of business.

I played TF2 with one of the talkative interns regularly, he said the money at LucasArts dried up and essentially Free Rad couldn't continue development. Pinch of salt always with unnamed sources.

The first two were some of the best selling SW games of all time (until Force Unleashed came out UGGHHHHH). Lucasarts just blows this generation.

Same reason that Star Fox 64 stuff is left on the Zelda OoT cart and a Spectrum emulator was found on a Goldeneye cart, people put stuff there (or was carried over from an older version of the game) and never bothered to take it out (since they aren't used, they won't come up in the game).

Confrontation is more of a SOCOM title than anything Zipper has done since SOCOM II.

Zipper is the one that ruined that franchise. SOCOM 4.

The generation is nearly over. For whatever reason, LucasArts couldn't strike while the iron was hot. It's a shame.

From Slant Six, there was a good chance it woud suck. And from Spark, it probably will suck. Battlefront franchise is DOA.

Confrontation did the most damage to the IP, after it's shit release it was unplayable for an entire year after the launch, that just destroyed the name of Socom, Zipper was hopeless even if 4 was good ( it wasn't) but the series died because of how bad and unplayable Confrontation was
